Design Store

The MUDEC Design Store, on the ground floor with large outward looking windows, aims to be a reference point for trends in contemporary design. It draws inspiration from the permanent collections of the Museum of Cultures and in this regard has been conceived as a “Wunderkammer” collecting items that are new and spectacular and that appear to come from a fantastic repertoire. Items that are “Wonderful” from the whole world with the aim of sparking the curiosity of guests or visitors to the Museum. Iconographic repertories drawn from nature and the animal world, new and ancient materials, artisanship and technology, in a cross fertilisation between recovery of traditions and new knowledge, masters of Design and emerging youngsters. Classics of Modern design will also be exhibited, even refined limited edition items. Jewellery, accessories, items for the home and the table, furnishings, books and music. Special new editions commissioned and made specifically to the MUDEC brand will not be missing.
